Baume & Mercier Classima : 1’550 CHF

The Classima collection makes a neat fit on any wrist thanks to new diameters specifically intended for women. It also comes in several different strap colours and materials, as well as a variety of dial shades. We have chosen a model with a quartz movement housed in a 31mm-diameter polished steel case measuring 5.95mm thick. The red strap also naturally caught our attention at this time of year.

Featuring a white mother-of-pearl dial bearing Roman numerals and diamond hour-markers, this timepiece with its leaf-shaped hours and minutes hands displays the date through an aperture at 3 o’clock. Its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal makes this watch an excellent companion for everyday elegance.

Hermès Heure H : 2’800 CHF

The new models in the iconic Heure H collection from Hermès, introduced in 1996, take on a lacquered coating that gives them a delightfully shiny finish. These 2017 models are available in two sizes (small and medium) with several strap colours and lengths (single or double-tour versions).

For this winter season, we have selected an all-white model evoking a soft mantle of snow. The 26mm H-shaped steel case equipped with a quartz movement is entirely covered in white lacquer, apart from the natural-metal outline echoed by the hours and minutes hands. The matching dial is also white lacquered. The single tour white grainy calfskin strap appearing on this model can be replaced by another colour or a double tour version.

Among the greatest parts of the Breguet Type XXI is that the motion – that is a bit more than your standard triple register chronograph. What’s also extremely important to mention is that, unlike many (or all that I can recall) Breguet Type XXI watches, the motion – with its appealing machine-polished gold strand – is visible through a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback window onto the back of the watch. Within the watch is the very well-regarded in-house Breguet grade 584Q/2. This is the newest version of the caliber 584Q, which now includes an “inverted in-line Swiss lever” silicon escapement in the 584Q/2, compared to the alloy straight-line lever escapement from the 584Q. This, of course, is not the first Breguet watch to use silicon parts – and it’s good to see the newest continue to embrace this technology, as it helps the moves perform better over time.The caliber 584Q/2 functions at 4Hz (28,800bph) with a power reserve of 48 hours. The automatic movement offers the time, date, and flyback chronograph, together with a synchronized 24-hour hand which functions as an AM/PM indicator. The chronograph is also a middle minutes and fundamental seconds chronograph, so there are two centrally-mounted chronograph hands to measure both of these sections of time. The subdials on the face have been used for the running seconds of the moment, chronograph hour index, along with the synchronized 24-hour hand (which among other things makes putting the time easier). The movement in performance and function is really fine, and also a highlight for possessing this or other Breguet Type XXI watches.

Longines Symphonette : 2’100 CHF

Looking for an original touch? This dainty watch with its two-tone bracelet and oval case might just do the trick. Its petite size ensures it suits (18.90mm x 29.40mm) even the slimmest wrists.

On this discreet yet elegant timepiece, the understated gleam of steel is enlivened by the glowing warmth of pink gold adorning the hours and minutes hands, the crown as well as the lozenges running along the centre of the bracelet. Due to the distinctive shape of its mother-of-pearl dial, the diamond hour-markers are arranged in an irregular pattern that endows this timepiece with a unique charm.

Ralph Lauren RL888 32 MM acier : 1’850 CHF

Dare to be different with this timepiece whose design veers off the beaten track by adopting an appealing combination of styles. The RL888 collection provides interchangeable straps for women keen to add colour to their daily routine.

Arabic numerals? Too traditional. Roman numerals? Likewise. How about a bit of both? The result is astonishing. The Roman numerals placed at the four cardinal points follow the curves of the white lacquered and polished dial, as if they were forming a circle, interspersed with smaller and resolutely straight Arabic numerals. The matt-finish brown calfskin strap strikes a pleasing contrast with the shiny appearance of the 32mm polished steel case.

Raymond Weil Shine « étoile » : 1’290 CHF

This watch is designed for those who struggle when it comes to choosing. Buy just one watch and enjoy the impression of having three, thanks to the interchangeable straps creating entirely different styles.

Understated steel, elegant black leather or glamorous pink leather: this model adapts to every outfit and can be worn in any situation. As its name implies, this watch exudes a very special glow. Its 32mm steel case houses a quartz movement powering a discreet date display appearing in a 3 o’clock aperture. Its steel silver-toned dial adorned with a honeycomb motif radiates out towards the outer dial rim bearing Roman numerals, while the blued hands add a colourful touch.

Clifton Club Shelby® Cobra Bucherer Blue Editions

Baume & Mercier – Clifton Club Shelby® Cobra Bucherer Blue Editions Replica Trusted Dealers

Bucherer launched yesterday the 16th model in its Bucherer Blue Editions line: the Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Shelby® Cobra Bucherer Blue Editions. The timepiece, a tribute to the legendary Shelby Cobra Daytona coupé racing car, is limited to 100 watches and will be on sale exclusively at all Bucherer boutiques.

A long history ties Baume & Mercier and Bucherer, both companies with strong traditions. Since the 1920s, they have cultivated an excellent relationship and share common values, such as a love of watches, watchmaking and stylish design. The latest addition to the Bucherer Blue Editions fills the two companies with pride. “The result of a relationship based on so much mutual affinity is an elegant sport watch that reflects the universe of both brands and will certainly appeal to customers who like an exclusive watch with a historical background”, explains Alain Zimmermann, CEO of Baume & Mercier. The partnership between Baume & Mercier and sports car manufacturer Shelby has inspired a watch designed to serve as a reminder of the legendary American Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupé. “Mechanical watches and vintage sports cars fascinate people with their combination of aesthetic design, sophisticated technology and tradition. They are an expression of an individual lifestyle”, says Patrick Graf, Director of Watches with Bucherer.

Baume & Mercier’s designers were particularly impressed by the aesthetics and unmatched power of the racing car built during the 1960s. The spokes in the wheels were the inspiration for the rotor inside the movement. Made of titanium, it leans on the car’s lightweight aluminium construction. Design elements, such as the racing car’s typical stripes and Cobra logo, are cleverly integrated into the subdials and second hand. The main dial in blue harmonizes perfectly with the black, carbon-look calfskin strap. It has a blue seam and a blue lining, giving the watch additional character.

The special edition is limited to 100 pieces and watch lovers who secure one of the watches will belong to an exclusive circle. The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Shelby® Cobra Bucherer Blue Editions will be on sale only at all Bucherer boutiques.

The back of this watch indicates a view of the movement’s foundation plate which has some magnificent engravings of the nighttime sky complete with all the ground. The picture makes it look like our world sits right alongside some type of nebula made up of watch equipment. Breguet can create that rear plate bigger to appear to take up the majority of the case from the 5347 since the plate occupies most of the situation back with the gears themselves consuming less space in the middle. The backplate is larger so that the motion does not look small on the giant 5349 case. It is not even possible that revealing the gears there’s necessary, but this is done for aesthetic reasons to further imply the mechanical nature of this ultra-status item.Breguet really presented three new “on-order” Breguet Dual Tourbillon watches for 2016, and every one of them focuses on a hand-operated guilloche machine-engraved dial. The dials, after being machined for texture – are then tooth painted for an extra colour. This Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 has blue tooth within the dial, making for a beautiful contrast, as gloomy always goes well with diamonds and platinum. In addition, this is, in my most humble of opinions, a visual improvement on the all-diamond-set dial of at least one previous 5349 model.For contrast sake, in this article you will see both the Breguet 5347 and the larger Breguet Dual Tourbillon 5349 in my wrist. While the 5347 makes for a stately, albeit comfy daily double tourbillon wearing experience, the Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 is exactly what you want on your wrist when assembling the generals. Along with being 50mm broad, with big lugs, the case is 18.65mm thick – which isn’t that terrible, really. On the fitted alligator strap with diamond-set Breguet folding buckle, the Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 can sit snugly against your wrist. You simply have to be comfortable with lugs that might stick out past the edges of your wrist. I’d be ready to bargain with that size issue to experience the continuing majesty of wearing a watch that apparently does the impossible by talking louder than me despite lacking a mouth of any sort.

Launched six years ago, the Clifton collection exudes an elegant, urban style while upholding traditional watchmaking values. This contemporary addition delivers a new vision for the assortment featuring a 40mm case and a refined white dial with a porcelain finish, making it truly of its time as well as a watch for the future. Most importantly, it is powered by a revolutionary in-house mechanical selfwinding caliber: simple, robust and accurate, it is endowed with the best watch technology available today.
In September, 1999, the Swatch Group bought Breguet in an investment group. Then he decided to generate a replica of the original solely predicated on written descriptions and drawings created during the pocket watch’s design and construction. Reproducing the 160 pocket view into what became the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette using just visual and written guides is among the least discussed accomplishments in modern watchmaking. Remember the love of the first? It was commissioned by a lover of Marie Antoinette for her, back in 1783. It’s merely a few months after the 160 made headlines after being found again in late 2007. The wooden box made for this was a marvel, with timber from a distinctive tree made famous by Marie Antoinette that Breguet reportedly bought for something like 7 million Euros. If I remember properly, the tree fell over obviously, but the state upon which Versailles would sell the shrub to Breguet was if it “donated” money for the recovery of the famed French palace.At 63mm broad in 18k gold, the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette attempted to replicate the original 160 in every way possible from the complications into the crystal made from pure rock crystal.

With their refined, porcelain-like finish, the five new models in the Clifton Baumatic™ collection by Baume & Mercier epitomize the brand’s masculine identity. They are coming with an immaculate white or an intense black dial. The understated, easy-to-read display features slender riveted hour-markers, slim lancet hands and an oversized date aperture at 3 o’clock. Topped with a domed sapphire crystal, the minute track – in anthracite gray or white – follows the perfectly proportioned curves of the 40 mm polished/ satin-finished steel case.

Water-resistant to 50 meters, the transparent case back reveals the new Baumatic™ BM12-1975A caliber, the first mechanical self-winding movement developed inhouse, in collaboration with the Richemont group. This timepiece, attaches to the wrist with an alligator strap that fastens with a pin buckle. The strap is easy to change without the need for a tool, and comes in dark blue, deep black or warm brown for the two-tone version. A five-row bracelet in polished/satin-finished steel, which fastens by means of a triple folding buckle with security push-pieces, is also available to complement this line of contemporary watches.

Baume & Mercier – Quality: the recipe for an everlasting success Replica Watches Online Safe

At Baume & Mercier, impeccable quality is a natural prerequisite for all new developments. This philosophy informs every creative project that the Maison undertakes, subscribing to an overall vision. It is the reason why a single director is responsible for the development of each product, its production, and corresponding customer service. This organizational method promotes numerous benefits for the quality of the watch, ensuring that everything works perfectly at every stage of the creative process.

Although the brand submits its watches and their components to a variety of production tests, it is ahead of time where the majority of production is decided. Brainstorming, meticulously planning, and outlining every last detail before pen is even put to paper is where the real challenge lies. Although quality assurance is essential, thinking ahead from the outset and anticipating all the requirements in the production, sale and use of a watch is much more efficient. Designing a watch also means imagining the life of the object years down the line, and considering questions of repairs, component logistics and production, along with legal issues to ensure that the product, its environment and the services it comprises comply with diverse national and regional legislation.

Every stage in the production of a Baume & Mercier watch is subject to rigorous tests and checks – and the same applies to the movement – the component of a watch consisting of the greatest number of elements. They both have to be intrinsically reliable. Once the first watches are assembled, the pre-series are tested on the wrist by Baume & Mercier employees. Improvements are then made as needed. Once production in series is launched, all feedback – no matter how minor – is analyzed to identify any problems and correct them. All of these observations are documented so as to enhance future development guidelines.

For this, the return of watches under warranty provides irrefutable proof. It’s impossible to cheat with such evidence. At Baume & Mercier, quality is not an empty promise. The most common reasons for a watch from the Maison to be brought to a service center for repair are shocks and magnetism problems. These factors are both external to the production process. Testament to the virtuous circle engaged in by the brand, the ratio of watches returned under warranty (already one of the lowest in the industry) has been falling steadily for several years.

Our customers have always been the focus at Baume & Mercier. With service and repair centers in more than 100 countries, we aim to meet their needs in close proximity to their geographical locations. However, for the most complicated timepieces, those produced in small series, and vintage models, watches are sent to Baume & Mercier at Les Brenets in the Neuchâtel Jura region, to be serviced or repaired in the hands of the watchmakers with the most experience of this type of exclusive product.

Breguet makes a sufficiently wide range of conventional dress watches, but once you’ve owned those — or in the event that you can envision what it would be like to have a safe dress watch — you’ll probably start to appreciate the quirky-cool models a bit more. It’s a watch that is far from ideal by traditional standards, but it does not seem to have tried to be in the first place; and I sort of love it because of this. The reason most observe instances are round is because performers have the easiest time making round-cased watches seem fine. Therefore, making a non-round case like a thing square, rectangular, differently geometric, or tonneau (barrel-shaped) is a unique challenge. The threat is that despite the best attempts these non-round instances won’t seem attractive… but the reward of getting it right is a really distinctive wrist-wearing experience which has the capacity to be a long-term classic.The Breguet Heritage 5410, which comes with a tonneau-shaped case along with distinctive Breguet elements is a very nicely made package. Tonneau watches have been around for almost 100 years, but have most recently become popular thanks to two extremely different brands: Franck Muller and Richard Mille. Every one of those two businesses offers different executions of the exact same theme – but it is done right in both cases. Those are in fact the exclusion of the standard as, in my opinion, many other tonneau-shaped watches on the market aren’t a perfect strike. The Breguet Heritage 5410, however, is among the rare tonneau watches that I love to wear.

Baume & Mercier is committed to keeping components in stock for all of the contemporary timepieces, meaning all those produced in the last 20 years. For older timepieces, the Maison is committed to helping our customers restore their watches. The vision for this is clear: when a customer acquires a Baume & Mercier today, he can be confident that he will be accompanied by the brand for the next 200 years.

Because a watch is first and foremost a design in the eyes of the customers, Baume & Mercier pays close attention to this aspect of the creative process. Yet, beyond their design, the watches bear a host of non-visible elements – their reliability, performance, price, guarantee, ability to be serviced or repaired, and brand image. All of these non-material aspects are critical when purchasing a luxury watch. For this reason, a Baume & Mercier will always be so much more than just a watch.

Unlike many of its fellow exhibitors inside the Palexpo, Baume & Mercier makes no claims to be a manufacture. Given the brand’s price point, it would be a folly to suggest this or aspire to this. Nevertheless, Baume & Mercier now has its own movement, the Baumatic, which has been developed by Richemont’s ValFleurier movement production facility in accordance with the brand’s specifications. And what a set of specifications: silicon hairspring, magnetic resistance to 1500 Gauss, chronometer-level performance and a power reserve of 120 hours. All for a price of 2,450 Swiss francs that would take some beating at Baselworld, never mind the rarefied atmosphere inside the halls of Palexpo. Oliver Müller brings you the full story tomorrow.

Fourteen years after the Double Split, A. Lange & Söhne spoils us with the Triple Split. The former was the world’s first split-seconds chronograph that could record comparative measurements with an aggregate duration of 30 minutes; the latter, quite logically, pushes the boundary further and is the only split-seconds chronograph in the world that can measure additive and comparative times for elapsed times of up to 12 hours. Find out more about this technical marvel in my article on Wednesday.

I’ve not spend sufficient time together with tonneau watches to really clarify the science of that which makes a perfect shape and sporting experience. To say that it’s all about proportions is too straightforward. In this example, I feel that the relatively flat top and bottom, rather conventional and stubby lugs, tall and flat sides with coined edges, alongside the actually round dial are exactly what make this view work.The Breguet Watches On Ebay Replica Heritage 5410 is produced in both an 18k rose gold and 18k white gold case. For my hands-on demonstration I’m wearing the 18k white gold version. The case dimensions really appear small, but as you can see, it doesn’t wear that modestly given the situation thickness. The Breguet Heritage 5410 is 35mm wide, 42mm tall drag to lug, and 12.9mm thick. It’s 30 meters of water resistance. This view may look a little on the small side for very large wrists, but for a small to medium wrist such as mine, it looks really nice.Moreover, the comparatively thick and extremely polished bezel adds welcome visual mass that I think helps the total form. You can observe that the full situation can also be curved, which allows it to wear quite comfortably. The sapphire crystal is also curved, but not more so than the case itself, which preserves a sense of visual stability. When there are other well-done tonneau-shaped cases out there that thrive via distinct layouts, Breguet gets tonneau right in their own distinct way. Naturally, it is not a style for everybody, but with something this visually identifying you definitely are not going to earn all viewers happy.The most intriguing part of the Breguet Heritage 5410 is the dial, of course. Complication-wise the timepiece is rather easy, offering the time with a subsidiary seconds dial and a huge date indicator window. Where things get interesting is that the particular style of the Roman numeral hour markers, in addition to the in-house created guilloche-machine engraving which is once again excellent. The dial itself is produced from 18k gold, which is tender and easy to cut, and then silvered once it is completed.

Since the Ferdinand Berthoud brand was launched barely two years ago under the leadership of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele its development has been staggering. Its FB1 chronometer, which is now in its fourth iteration in less than two years, scooped the most coveted prize in watchmaking at the GPHG in 2016. The new FB 1R.6-1 will certainly be among the contenders for this year’s awards, too. Its name might not trip off the tongue, but like its predecessor this new regulator version houses the same highly-complicated fusée and chain constant-force mechanism and conical power reserve function. The aesthetics may not be to everyone’s taste (but there is a mini trend for excessively uncluttered dials among the upper echelons of the industry, with Greubel Forsey’s Nano Foudroyante going down a similar route) but with only 20 models available demand will undoubtedly exceed supply. Oliver Müller brings us all the details on Friday.

Baume & Mercier – Clifton Club, for “gentlesportsmen” Low Price Replica

Are you an active and modern professional who has made sport part of your daily life ? Are you looking for a watch to accompany you around the clock : in the office, at the gym or on the golf course at lunchtime, as well as for an evening at the club house ? If your philosophy is about keeping “a healthy mind in a healthy body”, the Clifton Club is your watch.

This refined and athletic model combines performance with precision. Its polished/satin-finished stainless steel case, featuring elaborate curves comprising an integrated bracelet and crown guard, houses a Swiss made self-winding movement whose reliability has notably been confirmed by 550G shock tests. Water-resistant to 100m, this versatile watch has no fear of diving into a pool, while its green luminescent numerals – clearly visible on the black dial – will enable you to keep check on the duration of your paragliding flight as nightfall approaches.

And for gentlemen motorbike riders, Baume & Mercier has just launched a limited dedication of the Clifton Club – at the Wheels & Waves California event – with a commemorative caseback engraving of legendary speed races.

Clifton Club 10340
Our David Bredan recently visited Breguet’s fabrication in Switzerland and reports about the remarkable area full of “spinning engines” which generates these dials. They are operated by hand and require delicate finesse and decades of training to get the result right. You may observe a combination of techniques and patterns on the dial of this Breguet Heritage 5410, including a lovely wave-style pattern on the periphery of the main round dial to help fill out the tonneau-shaped dial window.Like I said, I’m sure not everyone will like this dial layout, but I personally think it’s beautiful. Breguet uses marginally larger than anticipated blued-steel pomme-style hands that seem great. This is also one of those rare instances where luminant is used on the palms in a non-sports watch from the brand. Joining some Art Deco topics with the distinctive Breguet new DNA, the Breguet Heritage 5410 instance and dial is something uncommon and cool from the brand.A trade-off of the curved caseback seems to be the omission of a exhibition display caseback, that is a small shame. Breguet finishes their watches and moves so well it might be considered unsatisfactory to not see the movement. Within the watch is the in-house-made Breguet grade 516GG, which is an automatic functioning at 4Hz (28,800 bph) with 65 hours of power reserve. The balance spring will be produce from silicon, typical of many modern Breguet calibers – that contributes to overall performance and precision over time.Attached to the Heritage 5410 is a black or brown alligator strap fitted to a fitting gold deployant clasp. There’s a slightly sporty yet old-world regality into a bit like this Breguet which I feel should allow it to appeal to the ideal type of buyer able to both manage its cost, and to regularly pull it off within the lifestyle. Cost for its Breguet Heritage 5410 benchmark 5410BR/12/9VV in 18k rose gold is $27,700 while the reference 5410BB/12/9VV in 18k white gold is $28,700.

Functions : hours, minutes, seconds, date at 3 o’clock

Even though the recent earthquake of Mexico on Sep 19th 2017 affected severely the flow of life and business in Mexico City, the SIAR 2017 Organizing Committee and the participating brands decided to rise to the challenge and continue with the most important watch exhibition in South America. The Salon SIAR 2017 ran from October 17th until October 19th at the prestigious Hotel St. Regis in the center of Reforma Avenue in Mexico City.

During the three days of the exhibition, relevant figures of the Mexican and South American political, financial and social communities visited the stands and meeting rooms where prominent Swiss watch companies and their respective CEOs and leaders explained their products, concepts and designs in a direct manner.

Christophe Claret was at the SIAR with its new creations

As in previous SIARs, several brands introduced new products and limited editions at the venue, such as Hublot with its new Hublot Big Bang Classic Fusion Calaveras, Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Seleccion Nacional de Mexico, Manufacture Royale Androgyne Mexico and Louis Moinet Metropolis Sunrise Sonora, the sale proceeds of which will be used to help the citizens affected by the Sep 19th earthquake.

The SIAR 2017 presented awards in several categories to notable watches and brands at a Gala that was used to collect and donate funds to those affected by the earthquake. Bulgari was awarded the Watch of the Year award for the Bulgari Octo Finissimo  Automatic, Chanel scooped the Ladies Award for the Première Camélia Skeleton and Hublot took the honors in the Sport Watch category with the Techframe Ferrari 70 years Tourbillon Chronograph.

The Rising Brand award was received by Roger Dubuis for its Excalibur Aventador S, while the Chronograph prize was awarded to Richard Mille’s RM 50-03 McLaren F1 Split Seconds Tourbillon Chronograph. In the Concept watch category the Zenith Defy LAB was the winner and in the High Complication the Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Celestial Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 received the recognition from the SIAR 2017 Jury.

Finally, in the Watchmaking Value category, Patek Philippe received the award for its 5320G Perpetual Calendar and Chopard’s Karl-Friedrich Scheufele was recognized with the Special Tiempo de Relojes Award.

The SIAR 2017 once again offered a solid platform for watch brands to present their watches and to get closer to the aspirations of the Mexican and South American markets. Communication and perception are key in these markets and the SIAR affords a great opportunity to encounter, in an intimate fashion, these two sides of the business.

Among the best areas of the Breguet Type XXI is the movement – that is a bit more than your standard triple enroll chronograph. What is also very important to mention is that, unlike many (or all I can remember) Breguet Type XXI watches, the motion – with its attractive machine-polished gold strand – is visible through a sapphire crystal display caseback window onto the rear of this watch. Inside the watch is your exact well-regarded in-house Breguet grade 584Q/2. This is the newest version of the grade 584Q, which now contains an “inverted in-line Swiss lever” silicon escapement in the 584Q/2, compared to the metal straight-line lever escapement in the 584Q. This, naturally, isn’t the first Breguet watch to use silicon parts – and it’s good to see the brand continue to adopt this technology, as it helps the moves perform better over time.The grade 584Q/2 operates at 4Hz (28,800bph) with a power reserve of 48 hours. The automatic movement delivers the time, date, and flyback chronograph, together with a synchronized 24-hour hand that functions as an AM/PM indicator. The chronograph is also a middle minutes and fundamental seconds chronograph, so there are two centrally-mounted chronograph hands to measure these two sections of time. The subdials around the face are used for the running seconds of the moment, chronograph hour index, along with the synchronized 24-hour hand (which among other things makes setting the time easier). The motion in function and performance is really fine, and easily a highlight for owning this or other Breguet Type XXI watches.

The back of this watch shows a view of the movement’s base plate that has some stunning engravings of the nighttime sky complete with the earth. The picture makes it seem like our planet sits right alongside a type of nebula composed of watch gears. The quality of the imagery is fantastic. Vintage Breguet Watches Ebay Replica is able to make that back plate bigger to appear to take up the vast majority of the situation from the 5347 since the plate occupies most of the situation back with all the gears themselves taking up less space in the center. The backplate is larger so that the movement does not seem small on the giant 5349 case. It isn’t even likely that showing the gears there’s necessary, but this can be done for aesthetic reasons to further imply the mechanical nature of the ultra-status item.Breguet really presented three new “on-order” Breguet Double Tourbillon watches for 2016, and every one of them focuses on a hand-operated guilloche machine-engraved dial. This Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 has blue tooth within the dial, making for a beautiful contrast, as blue always goes nicely with diamonds and platinum. This is also, in my most humble of opinions, a visual improvement to the all-diamond-set dial of at least one previous 5349 model.For comparison attraction, in this article you’ll see both the Breguet 5347 and the larger Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 on my wrist. Though the 5347 makes for a stately, albeit comfortable daily double tourbillon wearing experience, the Breguet Dual Tourbillon 5349 is exactly what you need in your wrist when assembling the generals. Along with being 50mm wide, with big lugs, the circumstance is 18.65mm thick – which isn’t that terrible, really. On the fitted alligator strap with diamond-set Breguet folding buckle, the Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 can sit snugly from the wrist. You just need to be comfortable with lugs that may stand out past the edges of your wrist. I would be ready to bargain with that size issue to go through the continuing majesty of wearing a wristwatch that apparently does the impossible by speaking louder than me despite needing a mouth of any sort.

Louis-Joseph Touron (Swiss Ambassador in Mexico), Carlos Alonso (CEO of the SIAR) and Carlo Lamprecht (CEO of the GPHG) proceed with the formal opening of the SIAR 2017 at the St. Regis Hotel.

Like so many additional Breguet Watches Hong Kong Replica watches, the 7787 balances its smaller diameter with some unnervingly directly lugs which are just the ideal length — the designer was able to not make the lugs a compensatory component, something which generally still happens too often on otherwise fine looking cases. As such, the 7787 is a comparatively little view by 21st century view standards, but it nevertheless has sufficient presence to look tasteful — rather than apologetic. Most brands tend to struggle greatly either in regards to making these designs look great stretched to above forty wide — which is merely the character of proportions — or with timid-looking, petite watches rather than This Breguet is neither stretched, nor timid. It is only about right.Breguet hands fulfill Breguet numerals on the dial up and that by itself is a good recipe for success. Only these two elements are similar to the touch or a fingerprint of a genius. It’s something that was created centuries ago and has been working in excellent harmony since. Kudos to Breguet for not butchering the hands but retaining them the suitable length — public service announcement: hands must at all times reach their individual tracks, not stage at them!Things get cluttered when the other 3 indications enter the picture — these are the seconds hand, the next phase of the moon display, and the power reserve indication. Strangely, I don’t mind this unorthodox design to get a dress watch. Dress watches, and particularly those which follow the dress watch code as strictly as this one tries, are more often than not worn on dull long days where everyone is wearing the identical form of clothes and shoes and watches and ties and talking exactly the same sort of talk to one another. I know today somehow it’s trendy to wear derby shoes with coaching shoe bottoms (a vomit-inducing disgrace, in my opinion), so if you’re to play with the “business attire” rule publication, you might as well opt for something that remains classy but also puts a smile on your face every once in a while.

Baume & Mercier – The Baumatic: Baume & Mercier’s masterstroke Replica Expensive

One of the best parts of the Breguet Type XXI is the movement – that is a bit more than your regular triple register chronograph. What’s also very important to mention is that, unlike most (or all that I can recall) Breguet Type XXI watches, the movement – with its attractive machine-polished gold rotor – is observable via a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback window onto the back of the watch. Inside the watch is your very well-regarded in-house Breguet grade 584Q/2. This is the newest version of the caliber 584Q, which now includes an “inverted in-line Swiss lever” silicon escapement from the 584Q/2, compared to the metal straight-line lever escapement in the 584Q. This, of course, is not the first Breguet watch to use silicon components – and it is good to see the newest continue to embrace this technology, as it helps the moves perform better over time.The caliber 584Q/2 functions at 4Hz (28,800bph) with a power reserve of 48 hours. The automated movement offers the time, date, and flyback chronograph, along with a synchronized 24-hour hand which operates as an AM/PM index. The chronograph is also a central minutes and central seconds chronograph, so there are just two centrally-mounted chronograph hands to quantify both of these segments of time. The subdials around the face are used for the running moments of the time, chronograph hour index, and the synchronized 24-hour hand (which among other things makes putting the time simpler). The movement in performance and function is really fine, and easily a highlight for possessing this or other Breguet Type XXI watches.

Henry Ford once said: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” But the inventor trusted his instincts, and rather than faster horses, he gave us the car. The first Ford Model T rolled off the production line in 1908, thanks to the conviction of a man who didn’t listen (only) to his clients.
One hundred and ten years later, Ford’s observation is still as relevant as ever. It was the inspiration behind Baume & Mercier’s main announcement at the SIHH 2018. The company’s first in-house movement, the Baumatic, was inspired largely by what was coming back to the workshops for after-sales servicing. The aim was to identify the main issues with the movements they had been using, and solve them. It might seem obvious, but it wasn’t straightforward. Baume & Mercier is not a manufacture, so it had no input into the development of the calibres it uses.

Like a true aviator watch, the rotating bezel in the case goes bi-directionally, and sporting comfort along with legibility is quite excellent. The Breguet Type XXI remains among my own grail watches, and I wonder what version I’ll end up becoming at a certain stage in the future. The Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette pocket watch is actually one of the most striking and fascinating horological objects of our contemporary times. In many ways, this watch and the story around it’s formed the basis for what keeps me in love with timepieces and why I began aBlogtoWatch at the first location. This article is maybe not true a “hands free,” as nobody but a select few “watch handlers” in Breguet are even allowed to touch what is possibly the most valuable modern pocket watch of all time. In 2013, an estimated value for the Breguet 1160 pocket watch was set at US$30 million. Its true value could be much more but will probably never be analyzed during my life, as this item remains a permanent part of their Breguet brand.Even though manufacturers such as Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin now have more complicated pocket watches, the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette remains the 5th or 6th most complex pocket watch in the world, although it’s based on the first Breguet 160 pocket view, that held the position since the most complicated watch ever made for approximately 100 years later being completed in 1827 (45 years later it was initially commissioned in 1782). My buddy and fellow watch lover John Biggs chronicled the contemporary and past history of this Breguet Marie Antoinette see in his book here.
I covered the narrative, with a lot more background information regarding the first Breguet Watches Greece Replica 160, its own story, reduction, and eventual recovery. If you’re interested in this particular story, I highly recommend checking out that article because the story of the mention 160 Marie Antoinette timepiece is one which all watch lovers should know.More so, a range of elements of this background, both long past and contemporary, of the 160 are still to a degree mainly unknown to the general public. It is actually a pure coincidence that Breguet unveiled the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette pocket view only weeks after the first 160 was discovered. Now, the Breguet 160 Marie Antoinette “first” pocket watch is on screen in the L. A. Mayer museum in Jerusalem, Israel. It’s more than likely the very precious horological object in existence.I mention the aforementioned coincidence because most individuals wrongly thought that the brand released the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette due to the re-discovery of the 160. This is wrong. Breguet had been covertly working on replicating the 160 for about five years up to that point. The contemporary Breguet brand is known because of its first founder Abraham-Louis Breguet. Often called the “grandfather” (or father) of contemporary watchmaking, the Breguet brand continued for many generations through various relatives following his death.In the 1980s Breguet was introduced to life in its own modern iteration through a new group of investors mostly separated from the first Breguet household (though, today, parts of their first Breguet family are part of their new again). It was watch maker and designer Daniel Roth who shaped the contemporary look of the new wrist watches being inspired by historical Breguet pieces. Just something like 5,000 Breguet watches and clocks were produced during Abraham-Louis Breguet’s lifetime.

Leading trio

It’s 2018, and Baume & Mercier is still not a manufacture. But it has brought three elements together: the manufacturing capacity of ValFleurier (a movement production company in the Richemont group), its own Research & Innovation division, and membership of the Microcity innovation cluster.
On the strength of these synergies, Baume & Mercier issued a brief for a watch movement that would achieve four things: it would be anti-magnetic, more precise, with a better power reserve and requiring less servicing. The brand’s positioning implies a fifth requirement: an affordable sales price.

Baumatic : le coup gagnant

Silicon sorcery

The Baumatic meets every one of these criteria. Magnetic sensitivity has been greatly reduced thanks to a procedure that is now increasingly common: the use of a silicon escapement – pallet, pallet wheel and balance spring. The pallet is made by Valais company Sigatec, and the balance spring is produced by a newcomer to watchmaking – Tronics, a subsidiary of TDK.
The balance spring uses Twinspir technology, which incorporates two layers of silicon aligned at 45° to each other, sandwiched together with a layer of silicon dioxide, which also provides temperature compensation. The Baumatic movement can also withstand magnetic fields of up to 1500 Gauss, which is ample for everyday use.

An impressive power reserve

The calibre owes its precision to a number of factors, which include the Twinspir technology, but it also has a new gear train design and optimised movement architecture. The Baumatic also complies with COSC chronometer certification.
But for the end client, probably the most obvious improvement will be the increased power reserve. Here there are no half measures – Baume & Mercier guarantees a full five days! These 120 hours are supplied by a completely redesigned barrel which is just 0.6 mm wider. The space occupied by the Nivaflex mainspring is optimised, but the number of coils (15) is the same as you’ll find in most production calibres. Unofficially, the Baumatic can even go as high as 130 hours of power reserve, with excellent isochronism for 80 hours – at which point most other movements would already have given up the ghost!

The rear of the watch shows a view of the movement’s foundation plate that has some magnificent engravings of the nighttime sky complete with all the ground. The image makes it look like our world sits right next to some type of nebula made up of watch equipment. Breguet Watches Watch Snob Replica is able to make that rear plate larger to appear to take up the vast majority of the case from the 5347 since the plate occupies nearly all of the situation back with all the gears themselves consuming less space in the center. The backplate is larger so that the movement does not seem small on the giant 5349 case. It isn’t even possible that revealing the gears there’s necessary, but that is done for aesthetic reasons to further suggest the mechanical nature of this ultra-status item.Breguet really presented three brand new “on-order” Breguet Double Tourbillon watches for 2016, and each of them focuses on a hand-operated guilloche machine-engraved dial.

This is also, in my most humble of opinions, a visual improvement on the all-diamond-set dial of at least one preceding 5349 model.For comparison sake, in this article you will see both the Breguet 5347 along with the bigger Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 in my wrist. Though the 5347 makes for a stately, albeit comfy daily double tourbillon wearing experience, the Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 is what you need in your wrist when assembling the generals. In addition to being 50mm broad, with big lugs, the case is 18.65mm thick – that isn’t that terrible, really. On the fitted alligator strap using diamond-set Breguet folding buckle, the Breguet Double Tourbillon 5349 is able to sit snugly from the wrist. You just need to be familiar with lugs that may stand out beyond the edges of your wrist. I would be willing to bargain with that size issue to go through the continuing majesty of wearing a watch that apparently does the impossible by speaking louder than me despite lacking a mouth of any sort.

More reliable, less maintenance

Finally, the service interval has been optimised through better use of lubricants. The movement uses four oils, three of which were completely redeveloped for the Baumatic. Unusually for a modern watch, oil is even used in the escapement. Use and wear will show whether this innovation stands the test of time.
The inaugural Baumatic collection will be a Clifton (40 mm). There will be two versions, one COSC-certified and the other not. The former will be priced at €2,600 incl. VAT, the latter €2,450 incl. VAT (€2,600 on a steel bracelet). A fourth version will be offered with a gold bezel, for €3,100 incl. VAT. These models will be available in the new year. As an added bonus, given that the movement measures 28.2 mm in diameter for 4.2 mm deep, a women’s version is a distinct possibility.

The back of the watch shows a view of the movement’s foundation plate which has some stunning engravings of the night sky complete with the ground. The image makes it seem like our world sits directly alongside a sort of nebula made up of watch gears. The quality of the imagery is great.

The Baumatic: Baume & Mercier’s masterstroke

Clifton Baumatic : the plus factors © Baume & Mercier

Our David Bredan recently visited Breguet’s fabrication in Switzerland and reports on the remarkable area filled with “spinning engines” which produces these dials. They are operated by hand and need delicate finesse and years of training to have the result right. You may observe a combination of patterns and techniques to the dial of this Breguet Heritage 5410, such as a beautiful wave-style pattern on the periphery of the most important round dial to help fill out the tonneau-shaped dial window.Like I mentioned, I am sure not everyone will like this dial layout, but I personally think it’s beautiful. Breguet uses marginally larger than anticipated blued-steel pomme-style hands that seem great. This is also one of those rare cases where luminant is used on the palms in a non-sports watch by the brand. Joining some Art Deco themes with the distinctive Breguet new DNA, the Breguet Heritage 5410 instance and dial is something uncommon and trendy in the brand.A trade-off of the curved caseback seems to be the omission of a exhibition display caseback, that can be a bit of a shame. Breguet completes their watches and moves so nicely it may be considered disappointing not to see the movement. The balance spring is generated from silicon, typical of many modern Breguet calibers – which contributes to overall performance and accuracy over time.Attached into the Heritage 5410 is a black or brown alligator strap fitted to a matching gold deployant clasp. There is a somewhat sporty yet old-world regality to a bit like this Breguet which I believe should help it appeal to the ideal sort of buyer capable to both afford its price, and to regularly pull it off within their lifestyle. Cost for its Breguet Heritage 5410 benchmark 5410BR/12/9VV in 18k rose gold is $27,700 while the reference 5410BB/12/9VV in 18k white gold is $28,700.

Two Tone Baume & Mercier Linea watch

Reviewing The Elegant Two Tone Baume & Mercier Linea Watch Replica

Although the Swiss watchmaker has fairly recently updated its line of ladies watches with the beautiful ladies’ Baume & Mercier Linea automatic model that featured a nicely finished stainless steel case and a mother-of-pearl dial, the guys at B&M decided to introduce yet another iteration of the watch, which is now presented in another, more expensive combination of materials. Called Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic (Ref. 10073,) the watch combines solid gold and stainless steel. I will only state once again that the main selling point of the watch is not the way its fixed bezel is finished or the movement is decorated, but its proprietary interchangeable bracelet system that lets you easily swap the bracelet for a strap and back depending on the dress you wear tonight or simply feel an urge to change something about you.

Since it was less than six weeks ago that we have published the “initial impressions” review regarding the refreshed Linea line (see the link above,) I won’t waste your and my own time retelling you how beautiful the watch is: it is indeed really beautiful and very elegant.

Again, the only difference of the elegant fake Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic (Ref. 10073)from its predecessor is the new combination of materials that adorn this timekeeper.

According to the watchmaker (or at least that’s how I understood them,) the new timepiece is going to be powered by either the well-known ETA 2892-A2 or its high-quality clone Sellita SW300. Both are automatic and have their oscillating weights branded and decorated with Cotes de Geneva pattern.

As you can see on the photos, the updated version of the Baume & Mercier replica watch has its fixed steel bezel and central parts of the bracelet that were made from the same metal swapped in favor of finely polished rose gold. Ditto the elegant setting crown.
